C4C week 12

Don't ask me why I keep making cards with this color combination because I have no idea why?! For this card I used the last substantial scrap of turquoise I had left, so maybe I'll move on to something different now! These colors really look good to me, but I have no clue why I made a Christmas card? I used this week's Crazy for Challenges #12 sketch found here. I love the ease of creating with such a great sketch! I started with a white cardstock base, stamping it with the small snowflake from the Snow Swirled SU! set with blue lagoon chalk ink. I embossed the metallic silver cardstock with the snowflake CB ef. The snowflake from Snow Swirled was stamped with versamark and embossed with winter wonderland ep and after it dried, I dotted it with a glue pen and added some MS tinsel glitter. Unfortunately the silver panel kept reflecting the light and you can't see the details, but it's there! LOL The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed with silver ep and I added some silver pearls to both of the black panels and a larger one in the center of the snowflake.
Does anyone out there like these colors? Let me know if you do, and you might just find this card in your mailbox later next month!!
